Total Exposure Networking sponsored by Speaking Of Success @ Sprout CoWorking Providence
Oct 15 @ 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM

This month’s TEN sponsor is Speaking of Success, LLC. I have a new workshop coming up at the end of October that I am really jazzed about, and I will be telling you all about it (and offering special pricing to those in attendance). The workshop is “Getting Noticed in a Digital Age – Storytelling for Business”, and I will be giving you a sneak peek. I hope you can make it – should be a great night of networking!

At most networking events you’re lucky if you get to talk to 9 or 10 people. Even then, are you delivering your message or just talking about the weather or the latest news headlines? At Total Exposure Networking (TEN), we make sure that you get to deliver your pitch to everyone in the room! Our unique TEN format consists of starting out with food, drink, and general conversation. Then, when everyone is there, we pick 5 people, and they each have one minute to give their pitch to everyone in the room. Now for the good part – we then take 10 minutes to allow anyone to talk with those who just spoke to ask questions, learn more, and make appointments. Then, we pick 5 more and do it again, and again, using the 5/10 format until everyone has had the opportunity to deliver their pitch to everyone in the room! A perfect TEN!
